Ragi muruku (CHAKLI)

Muruku is generally made during Diwali and on holidays for kids to munch. Ragi (finger millet) is one ingredient that I try to include in all my cooking and baking. Ragi is highly nutritious and rich in calcium. I wanted to try ragi muruku since long time. It turned out so crunchy and delicious with the aroma of ground nut. Homemade snacks are always healthy and mouth watering. Do try it for your family and enjoy it!
